Mine went back to normal within 3 weeks. I was off the BP meds within the same time.

Blood Pressure after Birth

How long did it take for everyone's BP to go down after birth? With this pregnancy, I did not have HELLP/PE but at end my bp started creeping up at the end. I had a few odd readings over 140 but it usually was in the 130s/70s the last few weeks of the pregnancy. My BP is normally very low- 90s/50s. Since the c-section a week ago, my BPs have been betweem 120-135/70s. How long did it take everyone's BP to go down? I want to follow up with my doctor but not sure they will do much since they are not super high at this point.
